Re: My band has decided to go "bassless"
Me, personally, I don't think I'd be able to play without a bass player. Maybe it's because I've played 18 years with one. It just doesn't feel the same whether it's live or in the studio or just rehearsing. But that's me.
Paul, if your band sounds good without one...then I say go for it. I think you guys will be alright especially since you have a rhythm and a lead guitar player. I know finding good musicians sometimes is hard, especially ones who want to stick around.
Best of luck to you and your band. Keep us informed how things are coming along.
